Social media Instagram is testing a new feature.
Through this feature, users will be able to add songs to their profiles.
A similar feature was introduced by MySpace in 2006.
New Delhi. Meta-owned social media platform Instagram is reportedly testing a new feature that will allow users to add a featured song to their profile page. The song will reportedly appear on the profile page below the user’s bio. The screenshot posted by the tipster also shows that visiting users will not be allowed to play the song shown on the profile page.
In this regard, an Instagram spokesperson confirmed that this feature is currently an internal prototype. However, the reported feature is not being tested externally. The feature that allows users to add a feature song to their Instagram profile was first spotted in prototype testing by developer and tipster Alessandro Paluzzi. He shared the screen of the feature on Twitter.
Song will be added by going to edit profile section
According to Paluzzi, the feature in internal testing is visible after the link in the bio section of the Instagram profile. The developer demonstrated this feature by adding a song to his profile. He told that users can add the song in the edit profile section of their profile.
Feature came in 2006
Let us tell you that a similar feature was first introduced in 2006 by the MySpace social media platform. This social media platform was one of the largest social networking sites in the world between 2005 and 2008. In 2006, this social media platform also overtook Google and Yahoo.
Feature available in popular dating app
However, the MySpace era began to end with the end of the advertising partnership with Google in 2009. During this time the revenue of the platform decreased and apps like Twitter and Facebook also emerged. However, the feature that allows users to add songs to their profiles has not completely disappeared from the Internet. Many popular dating apps continue to allow users to add songs to their profiles.
Feature not guaranteed on Instagram
Let us tell you that since the feature of adding songs to user profiles on Instagram is not being tested externally, there is no guarantee that the platform will make this feature public, but the screenshot shot shared by Paluzzi has given users this idea. Have raised hopes of getting the feature.
